Roy Hargrove

Roy Hargrove is a hard bop-oriented musician (and acclaimed "Young Lion") who became one of America's premier trumpeters during the late 1980s and beyond. A fine, straight-ahead player who spent his childhood years in Texas, Hargrove met trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis in 1987, when the latter musician visited Hargrove's high school in Dallas. Impressed with the student's sound, Marsalis allowed Hargrove to sit in with his band and helped him secure additional work with major players, including Bobby Watson, Ricky Ford, Carl Allen, and the group Superblue. Hargrove attended Berklee for one (1988-1989) before decamping to New York City, where his studio career took flight.

In 1990, the young Hargrove (he was only 20 at the time) released his first of five recordings for Novus. He often toured with his own group, which for several years including Antonio Hart. In addition to Novus, Hargrove also recorded for Verve and served as a sideman with quite a few notable figures, including Sonny Rollins, James Clay, Frank Morgan, and Jackie McLean, and the ensemble Jazz Futures. His Verve album roster includes 1995's Family and Parker's Mood. Habana (a Grammy-winning album of Afro-Cuban music) and Moment to Moment followed at the end of the decade. Hargrove also went on to contribute to well-received R&B albums by Erykah Badu and D'Angelo, but he also remained indebted to hard bop with such albums as 2008's Earfood. A year later, Hargrove returned with his 19-member big band on Emergence. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

No longer a Diamond in the Rough...Roy shines as brightly as the Sun!
Listening to Moment To Moment made me pursue a life long dream to actually put on a Tux do the light fandango with my wife.
My father actually named me after the late jazz trumpeter Erskine Hawkins and then proceeded to force feed me with lessons until I eventually could play ...well, not quite like Roy ...but Roy plays just as I imagined I could.

I did some time under Roy's high school teacher (in college) before that teacher moved out and took over the magnet high school Roy attended in Dallas -- Bart Marantz. I'd like to think Bart had a lot to do with Roy's success. Love his chops for sure.

Roy's only gotten better with age. He was already an amazing talent when we were in Jr. High and could have gone pro then.

I believe Hargrove is the reincarnatio n of Freddie Hubbard

saw a live Hargrove performance not too long ago ... He gets better with age and his ego allows him to showcase other players/musi c i a n s . He knows who he is and what he can do so it's no 'rain on his parade' to let others solo.

thumbs up for mr. roy hargrove beautiful music.

I love Roy Hargrove's music it's original, straight ahead, hyper modern post-hard bebop and always swinging!

In the mold of Clifford brown, Lee Morgan, Donald Byrd...just a low down hard bop trumpeter... a n d you can always expect to hear that fire when he plays...

IN answer to Laura Angela Reilly ...Go to amg.com and type in trombone and the world of trombone will be at your beck and call ..... a good group which I will always "big up" is the 'tokyo paradise ska orchestra', and cd called Miami Jam!!! and of cause the one and only Mr. Fred Wesley.

Im looking for more upbeat jazz- I love the talented players of the trombone especially. anyone got any suggestions?

Well, Im young and naive to the groove's of Roy's music. I recently purchased "the RH Factor" and was instantly in love with his music. Later I found out that Ive heard his music long before but did not realize who he was. But n e ways I love the sound and appreciate the talent that he has now and what it was back in the day.

If you dig Roy's earlier recorded work, check out the album "The Vibe". A monumentally underatted jazz classic with a few special guest artists.

Saw him at the Jazz Alley in Seattle a few months ago... always swingin!

I recently saw roy at the port townsend jazz festival. He plays with a warmth and passion that is beyond his years, not to mention his comand of the horn and nice CHOPS!
